National Doughnut Day is fast approaching, so when you walk into your local Dunkin’ Donuts on June 1st, you might just notice a few changes.

On Friday, the coffee chain that fuels America announced that it would be celebrating the very important and widely-recognized food holiday (it’s actually one of the more legitimate food holidays) with free doughnuts and new flavors.

Anyone who pops into Dunkin’ Donuts on June 1st and buys a drink will get a free doughnut of their choice—all day long.

Plus, lovers of cake and pastel rainbow sprinkles will be delighted to discover that the chain is releasing a trio of new, limited-edition doughnuts. The “Chocolate Cake Batter Donut” is a sweet specialty doughnut filled with chocolate buttercream, topped with chocolate icing and covered in confetti sprinkles. The “Vanilla Cake Batter Donut” is stuffed with vanilla cake batter filling, topped with white icing and sprinkled with confetti.

The cake batter duo will be available beginning May 28th.

And, for the summer season, when all we want to do is chow down on doughnuts and hang out by the pool, Dunkin’ has come up with some new party-forward names and doughnut designs. The “Sweet Summertime Donut” is covered in blue icing with a yellow drizzle, with a glazed doughnut hole perched in the center like a sunbather glistening on the beach.

Other options, like “Party On,” “Strawberry Spectacular” and “Boston Kreme Bash” will be available to folks looking to party on in the capital of Massachusetts with seasonal fruit.
